As Kate Fagan reports on Philly.com: “The 76ers coaching search is now 23 days old and, to this point, there have been exactly two known interviews: Doug Collins and Avery Johnson. Of course, the list is expanding almost daily and the list now includes a scheduled interview with former Toronto Raptors coach Sam Mitchell set for Sunday, and interviews with Phoenix Suns assistant Dan Majerle and Portland Trail Blazers assistant Monty Williams set for Monday. A new addition to the search will also be former Detroit Pistons’ “Bad Boy” Bill Laimbeer, who last season served as an assistant coach for the Minnesota Timberwolves and who previously won two WNBA titles as head coach of the Detroit Shock. According to a source, Sixers President and General Manager Ed Stefanski will be meeting with Laimbeer on Sunday, a few hours after his interview with Mitchell. By the end of Monday, Stefanski will have interviewed six candidates: Collins, Johnson, Mitchell, Laimbeer, Williams, and Majerle.”
